Summary

This report describes the scope and aims of the Survey of Language Use and Language Teaching in Eastern Africa. An outgrowth of a series of ICSLP conferences (International Conference on Second Language Problems, jointly sponsored by the Center for Applied Linguistics, the British Council, and the Bureau pour l' Enseignement de la Langue et de la Civilisation Francaises a l' Etranger), this Survey is centered in Nairobi, Kenya, with the backing of the Ford Foundation. The areas covered include Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Zambia. The aims are (1) to assemble basic data on the use and teaching of the major languages in each country, (2) simultaneously to stimulate local research in linguistics, sociolinguistics, and language pedagogy, (3) to foster closer and more productive contacts among specialists in different countries and across disciplinary lines, and (4) to strengthen the institutional and personnel resources in the language sciences in Eastern Africa. A quarterly "Bulletin" is available to interested readers upon writing to the Survey Office, P.O. Box 30641, Nairobi, Kenya. (AMM)
